    Sole Finest Example 500 Thalers

    Ethiopia Bank of Ethiopia 500 Thalers 1.5.1932 Pick 11 PMG Choice Uncirculated 63.
    This highest denomination in issued form, must be noted. Underprint colors are especially bold on both sides of this example. Large in size, as expected for this 500 Thalers. Warrior to left, the royal crest at center, and Bank building to right. The first E1 prefix is seen on this example with the first date of issue. This is the sole finest example of this type in the PMG Census by far. A truly magnificent early, and somewhat iconic example of African paper money. A not to be missed opportunity to own it.
